Trump: I could swap Huawei chief financial officer's freedom for a China trade deal President Trump has said he would intervene in the case of Huawei's chief financial officer, who is wanted by the US Justice Department, if it could help close a trade deal with China. Meng Wanzhou has been granted bail by a Canadian court. She was arrested in Canada on 1 December at the request of the US. The 46-year-old is accused of misleading multinational banks about Iran-linked transactions, putting the banks at risk of violating US sanctions. Beijing has expressed outrage over Meng's detention in Vancouver, ratcheting up tensions in the US-China trade dispute. Good lord. Is the level his "intellect" works on ? The Chinese must be pissing themselves laughing.
